Bolden, Johnson Earn USTCA West Region Honors

May 27, 2004

For the eighth consecutive season and ninth time during her 11-year Bruin head coaching career, Jeanette Bolden on Thursday was named the U. S. Track Coaches Association (USTCA) 2004 Mondo West Region Women's Coach of the Year. In addition, Bruin senior hurdler Sheena Johnson was named the West Region Women's Athlete of the Year.

Bolden recently directed the Bruins, ranked No. 1 in the U. S., to their eighth consecutive Pac-10 title (10th in the last 11 years). This weekend (May 28-29), UCLA will defend its NCAA West Region team title at CS Northridge. Following the West Region meet, the Bruins will be one of the team favorites to capture the 2004 NCAA Outdoor Championships (June 9-12 at Austin, TX).

Johnson, the 2003 NCAA Outdoor 400m hurdles champion, helped lead UCLA to the 2004 Pac-10 crown. In Tucson (May 14-15), she won the 100m hurdles (12.76, 0.0, personal-best, stadium record, No. 2 in school history, No. 3 in Pac-10 history), the 400m hurdles (55.45/her prelim time of 54.32 was a Pac-10 meet record and the world's current top mark) and ran the second leg on both of UCLA's winning relays (4X100m, 43.43, Pac-10 meet record, No. 2 in UCLA history, No. 3 in Pac-10 history/4 X 400m, 3:32.39, season-best, No. 10 in school history). She's only the second woman in conference history to repeat as 100mH/400mH champion (joining UCLA's Janeene Vickers, 1989-90). In the 400m hurdles, Johnson is the first four-time champion in the event (only the third woman in Pac-10 history to win an individual event all four years, joining UCLA's Amy Acuff/HJ/1994-97 and USC's Inga Stasiulionyte/JT/2001-04).
